Morsi Supporters Surround Supreme Constitutional Court

Supporters of President Muhammad Morsi surrounded the Supreme Constitutional Court today, protesting an impending ruling on the work of the recently-concluded constitutional assembly. The judges accused protestors of seeking to prevent them from entering the court to do their work, and they chose to “indefinitely suspend [the court’s] sessions.” It was known beforehand that the court was set to rule on the “legitimacy of the Islamist-led legislative assembly”.

Members of the court called today “a dark black day in the history of the Egyptian judiciary.”
